Fees and Rebates

First Light Care is a non-government-funded non-profit charitable community service. Service Fees are used to help maintain this service to the community.

To help low-income people and families, we provide low-cost subsidised services to people and families in need.

If you have financial difficulties, you may apply for a fee subsidy by honestly declaring your family financial capability when you book the appointment.

In order to help us correctly assess the fee subsidy level, you may be asked to show supporting documents to verify your financial capability if needed.

Please contact us for details.
